Theater Resources Unlimited (TRU) presents its next monthly networking panel, The Forgotten Members of Your Production Team: Casting Director, Dialect Coach, Dramaturg, Fight Coach and Others, a discussion focused on the benefits and costs of including these experts on your production team. Panelists will include Jennifer Peralta-Ajemian & Robin Carus, Partners/Casting Directors, J&R creative; designer/technical director Nadine Charlsen; dialect coach Amy Stoller of Stoller System: Dialect Coaching and Design; fight coordinator David Dean Hastings, currently on the Stage Combat Faculty at The American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA), NY; dramaturg and casting director Catherine Lamm; and dramaturg Anne Hamilton of Hamilton Dramaturgy. Networking and refreshments will begin at 7pm. What promises to be a lively discussion will focus on the following questions: • Even when producing on a limited budget, can you afford not to have all the members of your team on board? • Is extra cost is worth it for the finished product? You might have to juggle your budget, but don't short-change your art. • When can a casting director help you find the best talent? • How can a dramaturg and a dialect coach keep an eye on authenticity and offer social and political contexts to support the drama on stage? • What are the strict union rules about something as simple as a stage slap, and how might a fight coordinator be legally essential? • What are the standard fees are for these invaluable team members? How can you work with each of them most effectively?
